Today I am giving tips on growing your own Herbs to use in your favorite recipes. Now before you get all excited about plowing up the back forty, let me tell you I am into gardening the easy way. “What is
that?” you might be thinking. To me, containers and raised bed gardening is the easiest way to add freshness to your dinner table.
No matter what growing zone you live in, you can find a good
selection of vegetable, herbs and eatable plants to grow. In
some areas this can be done year around.
You wont have to invest in heavy expensive equipment, or
even a big selection of hand tools. Your regular yard tools,
may be all you need to get started.
Just about anyone can do some part in growing their food
needs. At the moment, I am living in an apartment but I can
grow herbs, flowers and small vegetables in my windows.
I use containers that I have made from milk jugs, water or
soft drink bottles, plus a couple of flower pots. As the season
passes, I will have herbs, garlic, onions, radishes, leaf lettuce and
maybe cucumbers. I say maybe, as it’s my first time to try
to grow a climbing plant, indoors, so expect updates as Summer progresses.
Choosing containers to use is only limited by the amount of space and your imagination.
These adorable boots are filled with flowers now, but they could be supplying just the right place for your herb garden.
Before buying, go through your home and see how many things you can come up with, that might just be perfect for your gardening needs.
